Health Supplements for the Elderly
I'm not going to endorse it, but to me it seems like a good idea.
According to a new study, a pill to extend life is in the works. As it

Wouldn't that be nice? Some people might argue that prolonging life should only be done through diet and exercise staying positive and laughing. I am in that boat. However, it also seems to make sense that taking a pill to extend life could ultimately be a good idea . . . sometimes.
The person who has hardly any quality of life would be hard pressed to even sticking around a little longer. Youth is not dependent on birthdays. Youth is a state of mind and body. A pill to supplement an already healthy lifestyle is ideal. It means we can enjoy a good quality of life longer than without it. Let's be honest here, living longer, but unhealthy can raise the cost of medicare and medicaid, and other insurance.
Aging in a healthy way, with exercise and wellness habits allows us to be happier longer, love more, and influence the next generations. After all, the elderly have worked too hard not to leave the earth in good hands.
So, a pill to prolong life? The magical anti aging pill of the future? Is is a good idea? A bad idea? Ethical? Practical? Would you want an anti aging pill to supplement healthy living and activity? Should there be another solution? Who should take the anti aging pill? Who shouldn't? Should we even prolong life? What would this anti aging pill have to do to make it worth your while?
